The 12 Oscars 2014 Moments Everyone Is Talking About

Seeing as how they clocked in at a back-breaking three hours and 34 minutes, you could be forgiven for checking out of the 86th Academy Awards ceremony early (or frankly, passing on it altogether—I mean, how about that episode of True Detective?). But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered; your Flavorwire sat through the whole damn thing, and put together the dozen moments that blew up the Twittersphere, burned down our Oscar parties, and will be on everyone’s tongues for a good, oh, 12 hours tops:

1. Oh, Leto.

Everyone was a little nervous about Jared Leto’s sure-shot win for Dallas Buyers Club, since that meant another Jared Leto acceptance speech, and those haven’t gone so awesome. Luckily, he steered clear of the awkward “Brazilian butt” and waxing schtick, giving a heartfelt tribute to his mom. And then he went on to name-check his band 30 Seconds to Mars and shout-out Ukraine and Venezuela (“I want to to say we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen and live the impossible, we are thinking of you tonight”), and for God’s sake, stop letting this guy write his own material.
